Default Camrock. The stupidest thing ever?

Watching snowboard profiles evolve has been awesome. Camber death + resurgence was great. But during all that shit there was one that was so gay. Camrock.

I understand the benefit of rocker outside the bindings, pow float etc. But what is the point of camber between them? The whole point of camber is to use the entire effective edge length, correct? So when you get on a camber board your weight mashes it down and that gives you a continuous contact point all along your edge. When you get on a camrock board it does what? Nothing, because there's nothing putting pressure between your bindings. So the camber there is useless.

It seems like companies are going towards flat throughout with rockered tips which I get. Camrock seemed like they were just like "Mur ber dur, whatever. Ill try some shit and see if it sticks, durbs".

Thoughts?

Loaded power in the center of the board? Camber has two uses. Effective edge length and pre loaded pop.

Have you ever ridden it? Hands down my favorite camber profile. All the grip, pop, and locked in feeling of camber but not catchy at all due to the rockers tips. A lot more playful and better float than camber too. Of all the alternate cambers, it's the one that comes closest to giving you the best of them all IMO.

Disclaimer: I'm talking about rocker/camber/rocker in general, not camrock specifically.

Camrock was my favorite of the hybrids too until I tried Lib C3. The camrock just doesnt have enough camber for me.

Yup, 9 or more board engineers all just herp-dee-derred their way into camrock.

Again... have you ridden it? I'm assuming no.

If not, then WTF are you talking about?

I'd bet good money that R/C/R will still be around in 4 years.
